    Do not download helixlauncher 2....I had helix 1 and my phone worked awesome as soon as I dowloaded helix 2 it locked up my phone...the force close window has taken over the phone. I tried shutting the phone down and restarting the phone and it completely locked it up like a virus would attack a pc. It acts like an exe file has been wiped out. I cant even believe it....any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    same thing happened to me the other day...i was able to get to the settings menu and then the app manager with some very quick fingers in between fc's....i uninstalled helix and then re-installed it and all was fine...your other option is a factory reset...i did not want to do that...

    So just so I am clear on this Helix 1 works GREAT on the Droid 2.1 OTA update correct? Helix 2 is the version JUST for Nexus 1? I am SOOOO paranoid about this after my ordeal I just want to make sure...

    Thanks for your patience!

    That is correct..if you read the app description in the mkt you will see that 2 is for the nexus 1 only....I have been running helix 1 for about a week and I really like it...5 screens are just what I need.
